Today I am featuring Marie Dry
Can you tell us a little about yourself?

I am South African and I love to travel and have lived in Zambia, Morocco and Spain for four years in each country. I also spent shorter stints in various countries. I have tead and written romance ever since I was a little girl.

What do you enjoy about being an author?

The challenge of getting the story in my head into a manuscript and losing myself in my story world. Receiving mail from readers to tell me my books made them laugh ir cry is a wonderful gift.

What type of romance stories do you write? And why?

I write paranormal. Even before the category existed I wrote paranormal romances for myself. I live mixing the action and fantasy worlds with the romance as the main focus.

Favorite place in Africa

Its hard to choose one place but I would pick Cape Town followed by Zambia and Morocco.

Why do you think African romance authors and stories set on the continent are important? 

There are wonderful stories here just waiting to be told. They might have a unique African flavour but I believe at their core all stories have a message that transends continents.

Do you think romance stories set in Africa & Africans vital to the publishing industry? If yes/no, why do you say so? 

I believe there is a huge demand for uniquely African stories. There are voices that need to be heard and stories that have to be told. We have unique cultural differences that provide us with a rich canvas. So yes I believe romance set in Africa will play a prominent role in future.


What traditional food do you love, that one can only find in Africa? 


I dont know if they are only available in Africa but I love kieksisters.


Thanks for chatting today Marie!

Northern Sass

By Elianne Adams




Blurb:
After twenty years away from the only place she’s ever called home, Maple Hudson is back. Too bad it’s only for a couple of weeks. With debts piling high, and more responsibilities than she can handle on her own, she’s left with no choice but to sell the land, ending her dream of reopening the family business.

Two long decades. That’s how long it took Jaxon Barnett to accept that Maple, his mate, was gone for good. Too young to be anyone’s mate, she’d been whisked away, and no amount of searching had brought him any closer to finding her.

After an attack leaves the Wassookeag pack devastated, Jaxon resigns himself to attending the Wolfe family’s scenting ceremony to find a suitable mate. That is, until the scent that had haunted him for years sends him racing through the forest, back to the old cabin where fate had played its cruel joke and stolen her from him.

Maple was back, and this time, she wouldn’t get away.

Desires of the Night
By Taylor Dawn

Gia Pendleton wanted one thing—to find her missing brother. The last clue she followed led her to Las Vegas' Club Desire, a place for vampires to act out their kinky fantasies. Upon meeting Layton Kyle, the owner of the club, Gia quickly realized her preconceived notions of the undead didn’t match reality.

Layton Kyle has walked the earth for over a century but finds himself second guessing his decision to become a child of the night. The mundane existence he lived became upended when a curvy blonde human barged into his office, searching for her missing sibling. His instant infatuation leads him to strike a deal with Gia—he will help locate her brother in exchange for her becoming his play toy.

With the contract signed in blood, Gia and Layton embark on a relationship that could be their undoing.

Phoenix and a Dash of Sass
By Jami Brumfield


 


Tessa Martin is on the hunt for a stone with the power to scare victims to death. Her job is to find mystical items and store the dangerous ones away in a vault made to shield the magic from harming innocents. While a noble crusade, it is a job that leaves little time for romance. The last thing she needs is to fall in love, but when she meets Jackson, her world is shaken to the core and her future becomes uncertain.

Phoenix shifter, Jackson Brand is struggling to launch his restaurant and finds himself in dire straits when Tessa walks into his life. The loan for the restaurant is in jeopardy of being recalled and his investor isn’t the kind of man you avoid paying unless you want to lose a leg or a finger. The last thing he needs is a mate he needs to protect from his past, but sometimes fate likes to add a Dash of Sass to the mix.

The treasure hunt will force the couple together, but the magic they make may not be enough to keep them from falling apart. Partnerships will be tested, people will get hurt, lives may even be lost as they are thrown into a mystery that promises to have an explosive ending.

By AK Michaels




Belle is just too sassy for her own good. It’s gotten her into hot water one time too many and she knows she’s treading a thin line with her Alpha. So what does she do when she’s forced to pick up a sexy-as-sin Scotsman and return him to the Pack? Heck, as soon as the Alpha’s mate goes near him, she growls at her!

Mr. Sex-on-Legs Scotsman has her heart racing every time he glances her way, her Wolf acting like a love-sick pup, his beast calling to hers as only a soul-mate can.

With rogue Wolves in the area, willing to take what they want, and what they want is Belle, can the lovers find each other and seal their bond before it’s too late?

Sassy Vigilante 
By Gracen Miller




Deader thought he had all he ever wanted.

Forensic anthropologist, Nelson “Deader” Montreal, is the bone-whisperer. While he has the success of high profile cases under his belt, his newest investigation is a serial killer dubbed the Redeemer. Unlike other murderers, this one kills some victims and spares others, the random selection stumping law enforcement. When Deader scents his mate on one of the survivors, everything changes. Concealing evidence from the investigation doesn’t set easy with him, but what’s a tiger-shifter to do when the scent of his mate is mysteriously tied to the Redeemer?

Then his mate brought excitement into his life.

Skarlet Weston is a sex-toy entrepreneur moonlighting as a vigilante. Saving the world is easy with magic at her fingertips. There’s just one major hitch in her life… her people want her dead. When she’s attacked and barely escapes with her life, she seeks refuge in Blue Creek with a friend. The city might seem like a sleepy town, but thanks to the town meddler there’s never a dull moment.

Caught between a rock and a hard place…

Deader never expected to find his mate in a foul-mouthed redhead, but she’s everything he could’ve wanted, and more. Except she’s complicated, sassy, stubborn, and her murderous family is just the beginning of her issues. Worried he won’t be able to protect her from enemies he can’t identify he’s thrown into a tailspin when the Redeemer unexpectedly strikes again. Can he dismiss his oath to law enforcement and ignore Skarlet’s involvement with the Redeemer? Or will he be forced to choose between them?

…has never come in a sexier package.

License to Sass 
By J.K. Harper


Blurb:

Wolf shifter Dante Romano is a ladykiller with soulful eyes, a cocky swagger, and enough smokin' hot sex appeal to burn a woman's panties right off her. He acts like he's shifterdom's gift to womankind. Since he's got the bedroom skills to back that up, why not enjoy the benefits? He would...if he didn't know down to his toes that curvy, tempestous Carmen is his mate. Only no way, no how does she seem to want to be tied forever to a bossy alpha male wolf like Dante. Not even after he puts his claim on the damned impossible woman.

Every time Carmen Delacruz thinks about Dante, she gets hot and bothered. He could make an angel sin, with his dark chocolate eyes and those talented lips and hands. Not to mention he stole her heart years ago, ruining her for any other guy. However, he's got the overbearing alpha male thing down to a science...and that pisses off self-reliant Carmen like crazy. No, she sure doesn't need a man to complete her. But when she finally realizes she really does want license to sass Dante for the rest of her life, it just might be too late.

Claws, Class and a Whole Lotta Sass
By Julia Mills



Blurb:

Hiding in plain sight as the Pack Healer for a bunch of wolves was the perfect cover…

Using ancient magic to hide her true nature hadn’t always been easy, but it beat the hell outta being dead...then he waltzed in. Six foot-nine inches of pure male dragon, looking better than a man had a right to and making her dragoness wake from a long hibernation to spread her wings, not only rocked Dannika’s world, it almost turned it upside-down. As if that wasn’t bad enough, an evil as old as time and twice as deadly has reared its ugly head. Her ability to hide behind her patented sassy attitude may have kept Dannika safe for all these years, but now the future of all things paranormal is at stake and only she holds the key to its survival...well, at least part of it.

It was supposed to be a simple cross country trip, but then, he’d heard that somewhere before…

Since the death of his father almost a century ago, Wolfe McCallum’s life had been a series of incredible ups and devastating downs that made riding a roller coaster seem like a walk in the park. It also didn’t help that he freely admitted to being more stubborn than a mule and twice as contrary. He prided himself on being able to outlast, out argue, or just plain irritate anyone on the planet into giving up without raising a single claw or breaking a sweat...until he damn near tripped over the most beautiful woman in the world.

One look…one kiss…one extraordinary night…

Secrets unlocked, Destiny knocking at the door, and a Fate that will not be denied. Keep your arms and legs inside the vehicle at all times, be prepared for sudden stops, and by all means – buckle up. Fireworks are the least of your worries when one bull-headed dragon and his sassy-since-birth dragoness are faced with saving not only themselves, but everyone and everything they hold dear.

The Universe may not make mistakes, but She doesn’t make things easy either. It’s gonna take claws, class, and a whole lotta sass to save the day this time.

Sass in the City
By Marianne Morea



Blurb:

“Do you still believe things are meant to be?”

Her eyes found his. “Not so much anymore.”

“I didn’t either, but seeing you here... It can’t be just coincidence.”

Solitary is not an option for a Witch like Lael. Not when your best friend is hell-bent on pulling your love life out of moth balls. But for a seer like Lael, stumbling across someone to help turn up the heat is not an easy find. Not until fate blindsides you head long into the last man you ever expected to see again.

You’re not welcome. For Jet Ellis those words were something he’s had to live with for most of his life. Ever since his future went up in smoke the day he was forced from the magical life he was supposed to have. Why? For being a half-blood shifter.

Ten years have passed since and the two are thrown together in place they never expected to be. Old passions ignite, rekindling a fire than never truly died. But revelations from the past force them passed their own misgivings, when the two are threatened. Lives hang in the balance and they must hold onto each as they face a challenge that will either bring them together forever or destroy them for good.

He had his reasons for leaving her, but between wrestling his wolf for self control and his own doubts, he’s struggling to remember them at all.

 But the past doesn’t want to be forgotten. For the pair to have a second chance at love, a lie must be uncovered and a threat eliminated. Or someone might get hurt … again.

Sassy Healing
By Willsin Rowe


Blurb:

Skilled Chicago surgeon Adam Gunnarsson abandoned his wolf heritage—and elitist parents—when heartbreak tore his world apart. And he swore never to let love sink its fangs into him again.

When family commitments lure him home, though, his determination is tested by Simone, a spicy human with more curves than baseball, and the voice of a bourbon-soaked angel.

Pressured by his parents to mate—to a suitable shifter girl, of course—Adam is instead drawn to the sassy singer whose heat seems destined to heal the rift between his two halves.

But as passions rise, so too do tensions. And anyone who’s not a predator becomes, by default, prey.

Where the Lotus Flowers Grow


Even in darkness, love can bloom…

Heir to a multinational hotel empire, Liam Montgomery thinks business is everything—until he goes undercover to check out their locations throughout Asia. As cosmopolitan as Liam is, from the bright lights of Mumbai to the tranquil beaches of Goa to the bustling streets of New York, he's never met anyone like lovely Mary Costa. He can't understand why this delicate, educated woman works as a maid. Or how she is reigniting his long-buried desire to be an artist. They are apart in so many ways—especially in the things Mary won't tell him. But more and more, Liam can't imagine his life without her...

Mary knows this unexpected desire for Liam must end. It’s true that his gentleness and sense of fun inspires her and makes her hopeful for the first time in her life. But she has a grim promise she feels compelled to keep—and painful experiences she fears he could never understand. And with secrets soon reaching out to separate them for good, can they dare risk a future together if it means confronting the scars of the past?

“I’ll pledge my loyalty to you through a blood oath, if you’ll support my choice of mate.”

Drew sank into his chair. “What does Rebecca have to say? The last time I spoke to her, she didn’t mention you.”

Blaine smiled. He hadn’t earned himself any favors. “She doesn’t know yet.”


Thirteen years ago Rebecca Ferguson died, at least to everyone in the Black Hills territory. With a human mother and unable to shift into a wolf, Magnum Tao, the deranged alpha of the Tao Pack would’ve had both her and her father killed for deceiving him. Magnum didn’t allow humans to mate with members of his pack.

Now Magnum is the one who’s dead and Rebecca can return.

But coming back from the dead, building a new life after her divorce and opening a library in town isn’t the only obstacles Rebecca faces. Elijah, her father, doesn’t approve of her being in Los Lobos to the point where he forbids her to get involved with the pack, especially the males.

Their relationship has suffered because of her absence and she hopes to bridge the divide; confident that she doesn’t want a romantic entanglement with anyone human or wolf, anyway.

In walks sexy private detective Blaine Walker.

Thirteen years ago Blaine stumbled on his mate at the local Swimming Hole. The next day, she was dead. Once he learns Rebecca is alive and living in Los Lobos, he decides it’s time to give up his career in Brooklyn and return to Black Hills. But he knows it won’t be easy to claim her since Elijah’s unnaturally overprotective. The only way Elijah will back off is to challenge him.

A challenge that will end in one of their deaths.

Rebecca can’t deny the old attraction she felt for Blaine is still there and even stronger now that they are grownup. She’s caught between the man fate has brought back to her and her father, whose affection she craved her whole life.

But there’s a life altering secret governing Elijah’s erratic behavior that can cost Rebecca everything she’s worked hard to build and everything she thought she could never have with a man or wolf.

Will Rebecca and Blaine beat the odds stacked against them?

Or will the choices they make ultimately lead them down a path both of them don’t want?




Guest Blogger Crystal Review:
A chance meeting as a teenager and Blaine finds his mate only to have fate rip her from
his life the next day. Convinced his mate has died, Blaine leaves the pack to start his
life away from his former home and the mate his lost.

Rebecca has a secret that threatens her life under the mad alpha's reign. The only way
to save her life is to fake her death and go into hiding. For a chance at living, Rebecca
disappears.

Both Blaine and Rebecca start separate lives away from the pack and separate from each
other. As adults, neither one is happy in the non shifter world. When the previous alpha
passes away, his progressive son Drew claims his place as alpha of the Tao Pack.
Missing her father, Rebecca makes the decision to return to her former home and open a
library. Her father still fears for her safety and wants nothing more than Rebecca far
away from the Black Hills and the pack.

Finding out his mate is in fact alive, Blaine leaves everything behind and seeks Rebecca
so his wolf can finally claim his mate. Neither Blaine nor Rebecca are the same people who
met years ago, but Blaine can no longer wait to claim the girl who stole his heart. Can
Blaine once again find his place in the pack he left behind or will Rebecca's protective
father get his way and send his daughter back to the human world?

With secrets and years that have separated them, can the mates come back together or will
fate once again succeed in tearing them apart?

A sweet love story with characters you will love and that will leaving you wanting more,
my first read by Inge Saunders was a five star read. I'll definitely be checking out more

of her books to see what happens between the rest of the pack under Drew's leadership.

5 Stars!


Excerpt:

“I’ll pledge my loyalty to you through a blood oath, if you’ll support my choice of mate.”

Drew’s eyebrows went up. Ryker, true to form, didn’t blink an eye.

“Why would you need my support?”

“It’s Rebecca Ferguson.”

Ryker straightened, taking on a solid stance next to Drew. The discussion wasn’t a threat to the alpha in any way.

“Her father won’t allow it.”

“I know.”

“He’s alpha of his household.”

“I know.”

“Are you going to challenge him?”

“If I have to.”

“And you want me to sanction it.”

“Yes.”

Drew sank into his chair. “What does Rebecca have to say? The last time I spoke to her, she didn’t mention you.”

Blaine smiled. He hadn’t earned himself any favors. “She doesn’t know yet.”

“You expect me to support your claim without her being aware of it?”

“You expect me to swear a blood oath to you without assurance whether or not you’ll turn into your father.”

The menacing growl from Ryker vibrated through the room.

“You’re playing a dangerous game, Blaine.”

“All of us have done it for our mates.” He stared from one to the other.

News traveled through the wolf-grapevine. Drew’d had to gain his mate, Betty’s, trust when he returned to Los Lobos after she believed the lies his father told about him. Ryker had overstepped their laws by mating a human, something the old alpha would’ve killed him for. But Drew didn’t seem to have a problem with humans becoming part of the Tao pack.

“Elijah isn’t going to hand over Rebecca to you. He went to extreme measures to keep her safe.” Drew sat forward again. “Even with the new order, he’s still protective of her.”

Blaine didn’t budge. He knew what he wanted. And he rarely lost.

House of Glass by Lyn Forrester


House of Glass
By Lynn Forrester
Poisoned House Book 1
Reverse Harem


After Caitlyn's life falls apart, can she trust her old racing competitors to help her build a new future?

On a poisonous planet, humans and halions coexist in stacked city structures with only a high wall to push back the toxic jungle. But not all poison comes from outside. As an elite, Level 12 citizen and the daughter of a ruling family, Caitlyn has fought her entire life to not follow in her father’s footsteps.

When her secret identity as Sparks, a low-level disc-bike racer, is discovered, her father ships her off to the Academia for Planetary Alliance to turn her into a proper politician. Determined to toe the line until she can escape, Caitlyn’s plans are once again thrown off balance when she meets her new classmates, Declan and twin brothers, Felix and Connor—three men who know her and are determined to become a team.



Excerpt:

“Yeah, this year will be great!” a male voice shouts from behind me.

Startled, I twist around and slip. My heart thunders in my chest as my feet leave the ground. Free falling, I fling my arms out, desperate for something to anchor me.

“Whoa, there.” A warm arm encircles my waist, catches me against a warm chest. “Be careful. Those heels are dangerous.”

I glance up into golden-brown eyes, surrounded by a thick fringe of lashes. Heavy, dark brown eyebrows slant upward as his mouth curves into a grin. My pulse pounds harder, now that I'm safe.

“Thank you.” A blush stains my cheeks, and I curse the translucent skin that came with my red hair.

“That's some heartbeat you have there.” He sets me on my feet but keeps a hand on my back as if worried I'll fall again. The heat of his palm sinks through my light sweater, burning its way into my flesh.

“Thank you.” I shake myself and stammer, “For catching me. Falling hurts.”

“Yeah, I know the feeling.” His gravely voice rumbles inside his chest.

I frown, the sound pinging in my memory.

“Nice catch, dude,” the same guy from earlier calls. A shaggy, black haired head pops over my rescuer's shoulder. Grass-green eyes rake over me, a smirk twisting the corner of his mouth. “Seriously, nice catch.”

“Stop it, you'll creep her out.” Another guy appears, black hair combed away from his face. Through a pair of wire-rimmed glasses, his serious green eyes glance over me. Tall and slender, the white button down school shirt hugs his body to accentuate the narrowness of his hips. “Forgive my brother, he has no manners.”

As my eyes shift between the two brothers, the first one stands straighter, moving away from his brown-haired friend. He pushes the black hair back from his face and turns to him. “Trust me, she's not creeped out, bro.”

“More like creeped *on*.” His brother glances at him, and they have the same straight-nosed profile, the same jawline.

“Twins.” I look back at my rescuer.

His smile broadens, hand tightening on my waist. “Nice to finally see your face, Sparks.”

Space Coast Book Lovers Featured Author Ava Wood

Our second author of the day is Ava Wood


Thanks Ava, for joining us today! We are excited to learn more about you!
Let's start with an easy question!

What genres do you write?

I write Contemporary Romance, Young Adult Contemporary, and I’m currently working on a Young Adult Sci Fi with J Laslie.
Out of all your characters who was the hardest and who was the easiest to write?

The hardest to write would probably be Missy from my Young Adult series. She went through so much during her trilogy and had to learn and grow throughout. And I think I put off finishing that series, because I didn’t want to say goodbye. After three books with her, she made a place for herself in my heart. The easiest would have to be Anna from my current WIP, Irreplaceable. I took so much of her from me that her personality and her story really flowed.

Do you tell your characters how the story is going to go or do they take over and you just listen? 
My characters definitely take over and do their own thing. In fact, I had one character who I’d planned would come in and save the day, but she ended up being downright evil. The worst part is that they want their story told at the most inopportune times, like during family gatherings or while I’m trying to go to sleep. It’s very inconvenient. LOL.
At SCBL what book will be your newest release?

I’m hoping to have Irreplaceable, a Contemporary Romance available when I attend SCBL, but currently my newest release is Remnants of Yesterday, the final book in my Young Adult trilogy.

Where is the best place for attendees to find you during the con?
 Most definitely, the best place to find me is at the book signing. I’ll actually be in one spot instead of flitting about!


Time to introduce Ava:
Ava Wood is an insomniac who writes to calm the voices. When the voices get too loud, stories are formed.

Ava was born and raised in Texas but got to Florida as quick as she could, enjoying the fresh sea air and summer storms. She believes there is nothing more beautiful than an evening summer light show.

She’s married to the love of her life whom she shares two beautiful daughters and four sweet fur babies. Their marriage is the perfect “North-meets-South” pairing.

When she’s not writing, Ava can be found chasing her children all over the county, snapping photos of any and everything, visiting one of her local theme parks, or just spending quality time with her family.

Lies in Love by Ava Wood
Losing love is easy compared to what can happen when it finds you.

After the latest in a long string of heartaches, her colossal crankiness has led Talia Byrne's friends to take drastic action and hire an escort. His cocky attitude and blase demeanor have her longing to slap him - and his perfect body makes her want to tear off his clothes.

After six years as an escort, Landon Havens thinks he's see - and done - it all. But none of his experience has prepared him for the little vixen that is dropped in his lap. So sexy and stubborn, she awakens something inside of him. Something that makes him question the life he's chosen. But can their love survive their secrets?

Forgetting Yesterday (Broken by the Sea Book 1)

Missy Shaw thought she had her life planned out perfectly; do well in school, take her basketball team to state, and get a free ride to college. Her life wasn’t perfect, but it was constant. With her best friend Karley at her side, she could handle anything.

After the death of her mother, however, her dad had other plans. Moving Missy from everything she knew in Kansas to the great unknown created a new set of problems. Attending a new school, all she really wanted was to be invisible, but that simple feat proved difficult when she has a run-in with the school’s basketball star, Adam Miller, on her very first day.

Adam Miller is every girls dream; charming, sweet, and gorgeous. And for some reason he’s very interested in Missy. His attentiveness is unnerving as Missy does everything in her power to evade his interest. Living with secrets she’s not willing to share, Missy works to push Adam away in order to keep her family safe. But will keeping secrets really keep her safe?

Return to Yesterday (Broken by the Sea Book 2)

After Adam Miller walked out of Missy Shaw’s life her junior year, she thought her world had ended. With her father’s relentless drinking and Missy’s numerous empty relationships, she’s learned to live her life as a hollow shell. Never feeling seems a whole lot easier than opening herself up to the emotions that tear her apart. She’s made a comfortable life for herself, going to school, working, and spending her lonely nights in the arms of her co-worker, Marco.

Everything is going just the way she likes until graduation nears and Adam waltzes back into town on the arm of Lindsay Dumont. With a single look, all her feelings for him come flooding back and being hollow suddenly isn’t so easy. His return opens up old wounds that Missy fears may never heal. Scars she’s fought so hard to bury deep inside. When all of her old memories dangle in front of her, she’s forced to find a way to bury her feelings for Adam while holding onto what’s left of her heart.

Remnants of Yesterday (Book 3)

Missy Shaw has lived through her fair share of heartache and abuse, mostly at the hands of her own father. After finally taking a stand against her abusers, Missy is faced with a new dilemma when her father unexpectedly falls ill. Longing to take care of the man who’s never really been a father to her, she’s forced to make a difficult decision that could cause a cataclysmic collision with her past and her future.

Now that Adam Miller was a major fixture in Missy’s life, making those hard decisions shouldn’t be so difficult, but when Missy heads to Tampa for college and Adam returns to Kansas, she’s left feeling vulnerable and alone. Moving forward is harder than she imagined when the demons from her past continue to haunt her.

In this gripping finale to the Broken by the Sea trilogy, find out if Missy is finally able to find her happy ending, or if the demons of her past become the nightmares of her future.
